Jon van Eerd (born 5 September 1960) is a Dutch actor, director, playwright an producer from Maastricht, The Netherlands. He has acted both in The Netherlands as well as abroad. Although appearances include films and TV, his main field is the theatre.

He has been a voiceover artist for Shrek, Despicable Me as well as many TV series such as Disney Ducks and Cow and Chicken.

Van Eerd wrote both the book and the lyrics of the musical comedy Charley,[1][2] which received four 7 Musical Award [nl] nominations.[citation needed] Michael Reed was the composer and Roy Moore (composer of the team song of 'Hello Hello') was the musical arranger.

He translated and adapted the Broadway show The Addams Family, for which he received a Dutch Musical Award in 2019.[citation needed]

Although Van Eerd is widely known as a comedian, he is also a celebrated 'chansoneur'. His love for Stephen Sondheim regularly allows him to perform in concerts and in special venues.

In 2012 van Eerd was accepted as a Knight of the Order of Orange-Nassau by Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands.[3]
